Environmental responsibility: creating carbon-neutral events

The commitment of the Campus Serge Kampf les Fontaines towards the environment dates from the very conception of the venue and its opening in 2003. It consists of concrete actions and an annual assessment of its carbon footprint.

This environmental commitment is focused on four areas:
– Rigorous energy policy,
– Responsible management of natural resources,
– Sorting and systematic valorization of waste,
– Mobilization of clients, team members and suppliers.  

Implementing concrete actions

Reducing energy consumption: Implementation of a building management system to control energy consumption of the venue, use of geothermal energy to heat and refresh bedrooms, automatic switch off when windows are opened, opting for electricity from 100% renewable sources.

Reducing water consumption: Washing machines equipped with a water-recovery system, water flow reducers on all taps.

Preserving biodiversity: Selecting cleaning products that are Eco-label certified, use of natural insecticides, installation of 50 beehives in the park.

Reducing waste: Replacement of individual packaging with bulk products, implementation of water fountains replacing plastic bottles, on-site transformation of food waste into fertilizer used in the park.

Raising awareness of our customers, team members and suppliers: Workshops, guided tours across the park to enjoy its biodiversity, annual assessment of our carbon footprint allowing clients to measure the ecological footprint of their events, a platform for clients to offset their stay with the ‘1 click = 1 tree’ solution in partnership with MyTree.

Each year, the Campus protects the equivalent of its ground (52 hectares) in the Amazonian forest.

The environmental approach of the Campus has been rewarded by well-known certifications: European Ecolabel since 2008 and ISO 14001 since 2017.
